I'll add the botanical names later as I learn them. Check at my table next Tuesday at the Gringo Market, and you just might see some of these as cards.
In the meantime, come take a walk with me through this beautiful space:
|Dieffenbachia 'Tropic Marianne'|
|Rex begonia: an excellent example|
of the power of grouping
a single plant type in a large space:
less is more
|A pink ginger - possibly Alpinia 'Kimi'|
|A dreamy portrait of |
with orange bouganvillea
'Flame Vine' - Prostegia venusta
One of my favorite plants
|Heliconia psittacorum - not sure which variety|
|A beautiful banana in flower,|
possibly Musa uranoscopus ('Red Torch')
|More of the pink ginger -|
can't get enough of it!
|Last of the pink ginger - for today, anyway|
|A magnificent dahlia in the rain -|
must go back and get this one again when it's dry
(Also known as R. juncea,
'Fountain-Plant', 'Horsetail Firecracker Plant' )
|Dutch Iris in the rain,|
still beautiful after being ravaged by bugs.
I'll get more of these later.
Thank you, Emily, for sharing your beautiful corner of Boquete. I'm looking forward to capturing more of your garden vision as time goes on.
